I’m 9 months dye free folks. I have about 4 inches of silver growth. I’m feeling like my dog and I now have similar color hair.
Not only is there color differences, but texture differences. The top portion of my hair is un-dyed virgin quality. It’s so healthy and soft feeling. The lower colored portion of my hair is dry and frizzy. When I let my hair go natural, the difference is obvious. There’s no going back!

I’m 8 months dye-free. It’s a real struggle now with the different colors and they can easily change. A center part hides my silver streak. When I pull my hair back, the silver is a lot more prominent. The silver also shows up much more in the sunlight. It all just depends Sometimes it feels dramatically different and other times I barely notice it.
I recently cut 4-5 inches off and I started using the purple shampoo once a week to try to tone down the colored portions.
Keep on keepin’ on.

I cannot believe I used to like this salon colored blonde…and I liked it for years! So much damage, time, and money spent trying to maintain it. Not to mention after a few weeks, it would always begin to change to an orange or banana yellow color. Ugh.
Moving forward it’s time for a chop. I’m at 7 months dye free now and I’m more than happy to cut off some length and color. I was going to try to wait a few more months, but I’m ready now.
I told my plans to a woman and she told me not to do it. “Hang on to the blonde so you can look younger for awhile longer”. Clearly, this woman and I think differently.
I love it! In fact, I’m already thinking next visit I might go a little bit shorter.

I recently saw Sr. Elizondo’s son using an app to actually change his physical features on a picture before putting it on Instagram. He laughed and said, “Don’t judge. Everyone does it”. Really? I hope “Everyone” posting isn’t thinking what they truly look like isn’t good enough.
I’m officially 7 months on my road to silver sisterhood. The pics below are me after I just rolled out of bed. Dye free, makeup free, filter free, all me.

Ready to see the crazy? Silver hair, blonde hair, brown hair, dark hair, Don’t Care. I’m 6 months dye free and I have about 3 inches of natural growth. My struggle now is with the colored portion of my hair. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) by October the silver will be eye level. Thinking the big chop and color to match the silver will happen then.
To be continued…

I’m joining the ranks of women who are embracing their natural hair color. I’m not gonna lie, it feels a little scary. Then I see all the beautiful inspirational Silver Sisters on Instagram and I feel really excited about it. It’s a sort of declaration that I’m embracing ME and who I am.
Here is me at a little over one month without hair color and I find myself sneaking peaks of myself in the mirror. The silver soon to be streaks are showing themselves now, particularly at my hairline.
The post above was written about a month ago. Here’s me today at 10 weeks. The main change is happening in front. The more it comes in, the better I feel about it. It’s not as scary as those first few weeks when you see those first grays and the instinct kicks in to color.
